Using Debian packages to install NSH or the RSCD agent

You can use the Debian package installer to install the TrueSight Server Automation Network Shell (NSH) or the RSCD agent on Debian and Ubuntu platforms.

The NSH installer installs the RSCD agent in addition to the Network Shell. Use the RSCD installer only if you do not want to install the Network Shell. The installers for the RSCD agent and Network Shell are exclusive. You can install either the RSCD agent or you can install the Network Shell with the agent.

By default, TrueSight Server Automation installation provides supported installers in the TSSA<version>-RSCDAgents.zip and TSSA<version>-NSHBundle.zip packages. For more information about downloading the NSH or RSCD agent debian packages, see Downloading the installation files.

To install the Network Shell or the RSCD agent

Run the following command with root privileges:

dpkg –i <.deb package installer name>

For example:

dpkg -i RSCD<version>-LIN64.deb

To obtain a list of installers provided in the installation

From the command line, enter:

dpkg –l | grep bmc or dpkg-query -l | grep bmc

To uninstall the Network Shell or the RSCD agent

Run the following command with root privileges:

dpkg –P <package name> or dpkg --remove <package name>

where <package name> is the name of the package that is displayed with the list of installers.

To see the status of the package

Run the following command with root privileges:
